The Western Washington Theatrical Training Trust is proud to announce a joint venture with Intiman Theatre, Franklin High School and Sawhorse Revolution.
Sawhorse Revolution is a non-profit organization based out of Franklin High School that provides education in carpentry to kids from low income neighborhoods (sawhorserevolution.org). Franklin High School has a proscenium stage, lots of new equipment but no technical theatre classes. Together with Sawhorse Revolution and Franklin, the Intiman Theatre will take 15 to 20 of the Sawhorse Revolution kids through the process of building and mounting Franklin High’s spring drama production. Intiman has arranged for a Technical Director, a lighting designer, a costume designer and a set designer to create the show and work with the students. Sawhorse Revolution will provide students with whom they have worked and the Theatrical Training Trust will provide and compensate professional stage techs to assist and instruct the students in basic stagecraft.
- This project begins Wednesday March 8 and runs through load-out on Thursday May 25.
- Most class sessions are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 pm to 7 pm.
- Over 130 instruction hours are available. A schedule of classes and times is now available.
- If you can commit to some hours in order to provide instruction in basic stage carpentry, basic set construction, basic electrics and/or basic audio engineering, please contact Mylor Treneer, Training Coordinator.

This is an important new initiative by the Theatrical industry to reach out to lower income kids who would otherwise have no awareness that careers in technical theatre even exist. Sign up and reach out!
